PA

SMS Posted Mon 09th of February, 2015 18:41:33 PM

We now have a PA and she is doing all the catheter teaching in office. She spends up to 30 minutes or more with the patient. This is well documented. How should I code this. I have always coded it as an 51701 when the nurse did it.

Is he doing catheter teaching or inserting catheter? Catheter teaching is included in E/M performed on same day in office. Thanks !!
